The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou ★★★½

~Under the Sea...with a side of Murray~

The Good: Bill Murray shines as always with his usage of Andersons' off beat humor. Wilson is oddly funny as well. What surprised me was how funny Dafoe was as Claus. For anyone thinking he always plays the same part...this one is different.

The adventure is absurd and I wouldn't have it any other way. The one-liners are soft and quick, but if you're paying attention...hilarious. I had fun unplugging my brain here.

"Son of a BITCH...I'm sick of these Dolphins"

The Bad: There are some slower Anderson scenes as well. Fortunately they are more speed-bumps than they are walls.

The Bottom Line: I'll take an off-beat Bill Murray led odyssey any day of the week.
